Recipe by Leeanne Wright

"This recipe was very simple and straightforward — perfect for a single working mom! I really liked the flavour of the cinnamon and cider. It went really well with the apples, grapes and even the pineapple. After a few dips, Jonah stopped dipping, and when I asked him why he said, “Mom, big boys don't dip their pineapple.' "
Crystal Baudot, mom of Jonah, 3, Nelson, B.C.
